Funny you should bring this up, I was just looking into it - I noticed your shows were failing even though the MD5s are correct and a manual FLAC check works.

The problem was caused by the fact that the location of the FLAC executable on the server has changed, but the path variable wasn't updated to include the new location. I've corrected this and I'll restart the contribution engine in about 15 minutes. Please post if your problem isn't solved in an hour.

Jonathan-
I am getting the same md5 failure with the skb show i have uploaded. I checked the file size on the archive server with the file size on my hard drive and they match exactly. Can you correct this? Thanks! William

Yeah, all you needed to have done was click the link that says its resolved, but I've gone ahead and done so. Seems to be checking now.

It failed

skb2003-03-06d3t03.flac: testing, 18% complete

skb2003-03-06d3t03.flac: ERROR while decoding data
state = 6:FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_UNPARSEABLE_STREAM

Thanks for your reply. In the future, would you prefer md5s or ffps for .flac files?

FFPs do nothing, but people like to have them. I encourage the uploading of MD5s with FLAC shows because they can help verify if a file is missing. FLAC files have internal fingerprints, so neither FFP or MD5 files are mandatory.

Create a program that checks whether the file set is complete using the ffp file. Just a thought..
